    Amazing internship experience!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsI truly enjoy coming to work everyday! Achievers has a positive, upbeat and super friendly environment that made me feel at home almost immediately. As an intern, I feel like I hit the jackpot. I am learning extremely useful skills and building my resume daily. (No coffee runs for this internship!) I have been challenged with projects, and even get to interact with higher level management (VP level). On Friday afternoons there is social drinking in the office which has allowed me to get to know co-workers from different departments. As if that wasn't enough- you also get free lunch everyday, which was a huge bonus in my book. I am gaining amazing experience at a growing company. Can't stop bragging about how great my internship is!

    ConsIf you don't like being social or meeting new people you would probably not do well in this environment. Also, things are always changing so adaptability is a must!

    I love this company

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    Proscoming from larger corporations, it's awesome to work for a company that is small enough to evolve quickly but large enough to offer you internal support (~250 ee's). Also, people really do "get it" here. Everyone understands that if our clients don't succeed, then we don't succeed. And everyone has a vested interest in our success...so you see people go the extra mile all the time.

    Consif you are looking for the same thing every day....probably not the place for you.

    Great product, company culture and opportunity

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsThere is a great team culture at Achievers, which starts with every employee having an understanding of what each department is responsible for. It is also fostered by senior leadership being very transparent about the company's goals and our progress towards achieving them.

    ConsAs with any growing company, the only constant is change. So be prepared to roll with the changes - good or bad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep communicating with everyone and asking for feedback. It will be important to try to keep the same team culture as the company grows.

    You are actually valued.

    Member Experience Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsThe staff is amazing, the work is challenging and the culture is to die for. The work is constant and the time goes by extremely fast.

    ConsIt's easy to fall behind quick if you get nailed with a few hard cases in a day, bringing your overall score for the quarter down drastically, just because of bad luck, not bad performance. Also work-life balance is tough because hours range differently every day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey pay for a part of your cell phone bill, offer a decent benefits plan, buy you a new phone every two years, pay for a portion of your gym membership, discounted metro-passes, you can dress professionally or casual, free breakfast everyday, free lunch 3 days a week, free dinner 1 day a week. Many retreats and work parties, great place to make friends, their recruiting staff is amazing.

    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsIncredibly friendly team
    Every work day is different
    Huge emphasis on results
    Constantly changing and growing company

    ConsInter-department communication sometimes suffers due to speed of work
    Work loads can grow extremely quickly
    Interview process can drag at times

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. There seems to be a push in recent months to increase transparency and top-down communication - this is a good thing, and should continue to grow.

    Engaging Environment!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAchievers is a fast-paced and high energy environment. It’s not for everyone, but for those who thrive in this type of atmosphere, its top notch. Working alongside of other intelligent, ambitious and passionate people is the highlight of this job. The people here work hard and love what they do.

    ConsIf you can’t keep up, you’ll sink quickly. Fortunately, most people who get hired here are good swimmers.

    Achievers - CULTure of L.O.V.E

    MD EMEA (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsAchievers is about Employees and they live there values in every way. Providing Employee Success Platforms to help ompanies create a culture of Engagment and Aligning Employees with the company values using Social and recognition to drive that alignment. I have never experienced a company with such a strong culture and a buzz that many others can only crave

    ConsNone to my mind, it's a small and rapidly growing company and with that remaining agile is one of its key differentiators in the market
